The merciful vultures of the title poem and a horse caught in a frozen pond, "half a white statue in a fountain of ice," are indeed memorable, and Bottoms grapples effectively with the dead that "stare fish-blind into the lights of hospitals" or, like his father, hauntingly await doom in World War II photographs.

David Bottoms (born 1949 in Canton, Georgia) is an American poet. Bottoms' first book, Shooting Rats at the Bibb County Dump, was selected by Robert Penn Warren as winner of the 1979 Walt Whitman Award of the Academy of American Poets.

Dive deep into David Bottoms' Under the Vulture-Tree with extended . Bottoms has divided his book into five sections, withholding the title poem until almost the end of the third section

Under the Vulture-Tree is a collection of thirty poems by a man desperate, as he says, for something to praise, specifically something small and changing"-a white maggot in its cradle, the tadpole’s tiny feet, the horn-worm and the phoenix moth. David Bottoms’ poems are full of change, and they are full of praise. Bottoms has divided his book into five sections, withholding the title poem until almost the end of the third section.

Poems deal with nature, winter, electricity, ghosts, traditions, music, city life, death, and the past
